Why CI/CD in the cloud?

By providing our BUILT4.CLOUD SaaS offerings we aim to make it as easy as possible for our customers to implement CI/CD workflows and ultimately increase their software quality. Our services facilitate your agile transformation and optimize existing agile methods. Based on our experience, CI/CD reveals its full potential in the cloud as we can design CI/CD workflows way more flexible that scale easily on demand and are just payable per use. A well implemented CI/CD workflow has a direct positive impact on software quality and shortens development cycles which results in a clear competitive advantage.

Why GitLab?

GitLab is one of the most successful version control systems for software development. It is used for example by IBM, NASA, CERN and SpaceX. A key factor for its success is a strong focus and good integration of CI/CD workflows. It presents a complete solution for all test integration and orchestration tasks as well as deployments. A central building block of this solution is GitLab Runner, which executes your CI/CD workflows.

We provision all our Runner in Exoscale - a Swiss cloud provier and strong partner.

Also, feel free to use it if you ran out of free GitLab Runner minutes - no matter if it is for public or private projects.

A note about the Token: You find it in your GitLab Project under Settings -- CI/CD. Be careful with this Token as everyone who has it can register a Runner at your project and therefore potentially receives read access to your project. Because of that we encrypt your token on client-site in your Browser before it is sent to us - only we can decrypt it. You can also leave that field empty if you want to send us that Token by another way or if you don't know which Token to enter here.
